Sparks, Nevada (The Weekly Vice) - Two teachers from the same high school have now been arrested for allegedly having sex with students. Both arrests occurring within weeks of one another.
Bethyl "Beth" Shepherd, a 34-year-old special education teacher at Reed High School in Sparks, Nevada was jailed Monday on charges that she had sex with two 17-year-old students inside her vehicle.
Investigators say Shepherd told them that one of the students forced her to engage in sexual activities. She claimed that no sexual contact occurred between her and the second 17-year-old who was in the vehicle.
Detectives say Shepherd's account of the incident does not match up with witness statements and evidence gathered through the investigation.
Shepherd was booked on two counts of sexual conduct between a teacher and a student. Her bail was set at $4,000.
Marie Fisher, a 21-year-old special education teaching assistant at the same school was arrested last month on charges that she had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.
Investigators say an investigation was launched after school officials received an anonymous tip about the alleged relationship. Police interviewed Fisher and made an arrest following the interviews.
Detectives haven't released much about the case except to say Fisher sent the teen a picture of her half naked breast and the alleged sexual contact occurred in the last few days before her arrest.
She was booked into the Washoe County Jail on charges of sexual misconduct and seduction of a male student under 16 years old. Her bail was set at $7,000.
